Not exactly subtle, is it? Osbourne, Cameron and Boris Johnson were all in school together, and I'm sure I could be missing some others...

You get this sort of slimy behaviour in all major political parties, presumably in all democratic countries (and of course the nepotism tends to be even worse in the non-democratic countries). I'm sure that you could find similar things in Labour and the Lib-Dems. If not then there'd be some other sort of scandal.

Conservatives engaging in nepotism? This is completely without precedent

This is typical behaviour of politicians, regardless of country.

No all three of them were at different colleges in Oxford, Tho both Cameron and the Yank (he was born is New York) Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson did go to Eton. The only connection all three have is the Bullingdon Club.
